W&L Theater and Dance and the Design and Performance spring term class present a Reading of Romeo’s Dream on Friday, May 18 at 8 p.m. in the Johnson Theatre located in Lenfest Center for the Arts. Also featured are New York AEA actors Kathleen O'Grady and William Franke. No tickets are required.
Written by Christopher Cartmill ’84, Romeo’s Dream is a wild ride through the dark labyrinth of a dark city. Ansel Kessel works in a music store on Auldslip Street with eccentric Gordon Kodály, whose jacket is covered with random, prophetic slips of paper. Everything changes the evening a man in a hat enters looking for the building next door. "There's a sense of chase and terror yet, at the same tame, there's flaming radiation of eroticism and desire, one finds in the cinema of Bunuel." (one act;100 mins.)
Romeo’s Dream received the prestigious Roger L. Stevens Award from the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays
